God dammit, I think I'll just grind to max level.
Even on nightmare it's the same shit, unless you are max level for the area you'll never beat him, and being lvl 4 he's piss easy, but grinding outside the dungeon shouldn't be longer than 5 minutes.
Ys 1 is pretty terrible aside from the music. It's like this for virtually every boss. I recommend playing it on an easier difficulty or grinding. Fortunately, Ys 2 is substantially better.
I stopped playing there.
Might as well name that boss "Game Over"
How is anyone supposed to realize you can get a free sword by talking to everyone in the first town, and then going back to talk to the militia guy?
Or the ability to barter the price down with one of the NPC shops?
>Ys is pretty terrible
There is no grinding after the half way into the game
even then the grinding is short as fuck
the bosses are fun on nightmare
being a human bumper car is fun
